In a well established market, our goal is to deliver cost-effective and sustainable solutions which can either secure ongoing refining capability, or assist in environmentally compliant decommissioning and remediation.
Refineries deliver materials including petroleum, diesel, aviation turbine fuel, fuel oil and LPG, with the vast majority of refining activities occurring on the east coast of Australia, with two refineries in Queensland and Victoria alike and one in New South Wales and Western Australia respectively. In Australia alone, the petroleum refining industry is worth approximately A$40 Billion.
Challenges of Refineries
With a significant amount of the Australian refining infrastructure originally constructed within the 1950s, the long term viability of the industry presents major challenges including:
- Ageing facilities and assets
- Limited industry scale
- Competitive alternatives to petroleum
